Kathie Fife, President of Artemis Natural Resource Designs, has a diverse background in natural resources. She grew up in a small rural community where she had the opportunity to learn about the forest, plants, and animals around her from spending time with her family hiking and volunteering time for conservation efforts, such as for the wood duck, and many other important species and places.

Conducting botanical surveys in a rich mesic forest
Kathie earned her Associates degree from the University of New Hampshire in 1995 in Horticulture, with an emphasis on native plant species to attract beneficial organisms and wildlife habitat enhancement. After graduating from UNH, she worked for the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services as a technician for six years while consulting in the horticultural field designing and creating gardens using native plant materials. She also spent many months traveling the States and visited more than half of all the National Parks.
Snowmobile Trail Map
In 2001, she earned her Bachelors degree from UNH in Environmental Conservation with a minor in Wildlife. During her last semester of college, she backpacked the Maine Applalachian Trail with her dog to raise money through sponsorship to build handicap accessible ramps for her hometown library, Elkins Public Library in Canterbury, New Hampshire.

After graduating from UNH, she worked for a NH non-profit land trust as a botanist, easement steward, and GIS specialist.


She created maps for the LCHIP (Land and Community Heritage Investment Program) application to acquire the Gold Star Properties along the Merrimack River in Canterbury and Concord. She then went on to work for the Forest Service on the White Mountain National Forest as a botanist conducting rare and endangered plant surveys and also on the content analysis team of the Forest Plan Revision, and provided botanical, GPS, and GIS consulting services for the Discovery Trail along the Kancamagus Highway. After completing her contracts with the Forest Service she became Executive Director of a non-profit organization promoting the current use program.

In 2005 Kathie's interest in photography and graphic design led her to invest in professional design and photography courses, software, and equipment. She began her new adventure at the Grand Canyon National Park.

In 2006, Kathie decided it was time to begin her own consulting and graphic design company, and left her position as Executive Director, and in 2007, she started Artemis Natural Resource Designs, LLC.

Many people ask her why Artemis? What does it mean? It is a question she likes to hear, because then she knows people are curious, and it opens the door to communication about ANRD's mission, but also Kathie can listen to what the organization needs are, and then can offer her professional assistance.
